Staff Portraits within an office Setting
An on-location photo shoot that involves a planning visit to evaluate the spaces to be photographed and determine the best colors for people to wear. Each shot is expertly set-up with any necessary lighting equipment and the images are shot directly into a laptop for on-site evaluation. Images are selected and any necessary editing is done to enhance the image. Client chosen images are then “finished” and released in digital files, for website and advertising purposes.
Typically an in-studio photo shoot, against a white background, of products for website use. It involves a careful setup of lighting to enhance the product while working with any potential glare. Images are carefully selected and any necessary editing is done to enhance and "finish" the image. Images are released as digital files, formatted for your website and advertising purposes.
This style of photography is distinguished from other genres like "glamour" photography, "fine-art" nude photography and "erotic" photography because nudilty is more often implied than explicit. These photoshoots are typically shot on-location in a bedroom setting (although nature settings work well too!),utilizing as much natural light as possible for a soft look. Shooting at a window, in a doorway, seated in a chair, while dressed in pretty lingerie, or in a bed with draping sheets and soft natural light playing on the skin and curves of a womans body help define the "Bourdoir" style.
Bourdoir sessions begins with location scouting and decisions on clothing. The photography fee is based upon how many kinds of pictures are wanted and the amount of time needed in editing. The selected portraits are expertly finished in photo shop and can be printed in book form or as custom enlargements.

Client chosen images are then “finished” and prepared for design and printing of a composite. They are also released in digital files for website and advertising purposes as well as Facebook.
